What a wonderful Wedding day we had
Thank you to you both for everything; what a wonderful wedding day we had. Words can't quite describe our wedding day, it was simply wonderful. The day was exactly what we envisaged; everything worked so well in terms of decorations at the church and Essendon, the food was delicious and the service was spot on. A highlight was when we were welcomed and everyone was waving their napkins, looking down at the barn and seeing all of our family and friends who we care about so much.

We really couldn't have asked for a better planner
We really could not have asked for a better planner. You have been fantastically efficient, constantly upbeat and reassuring, and overall a complete pleasure to deal with. Once we knew that we could rely on you unquestionably, everything became easier for us. Your entire team did a brilliant job. Special shout out to Fiona and Tyra who were both amazing. Everyone had a great time and the feedback has been amazing.

Highly recommend!
We got married at the venue in September 2023. The team at Essendon ensured that our wedding went smoothly from start to finish! We had a fantastic day and all of the guests commented on how lovely the venue was. Our wedding planner Fiona was very attentive throughout and also very flexible with our ever-changing minds and guest list! They listened to everything we wanted and went above and beyond to achieve this for us. I highly recommend to anyone considering choosing Essendon for their wedding venue!
